Strawberry Banana Ice-pops [8-10m+] & Toddler

image

After the big storm comes the sun! It’s time for ice-pop again. Strawberries are now in season. Yay! 😋 Strawberry & banana puree was lilbro’s favourite fruit puree as a baby. So yummy for little teething babies / toddlers . 👍 Sometimes simple is the best! 🙂

Strawberries are packed with B and C vitamins! A treat for babies at least 8 months old, strawberries are so simple to blend. You can make luscious strawberry puree or smoothie with almost any fruits!
Since strawberries are part of the “dirty dozen” foods with the highest pesticide residue, it’s a good idea to buy organic.

If your baby has chronic eczema or a food allergy, talk to the doctor first before introducing strawberries.

Ingredients

🍓A handful of strawberries
🍓1 ripe banana

Method

Blend everything together and use a table spoon to fill up the mould and freeze. The rest can drink as smoothie.

Strawberry & Banana Smoothie / Puree with Rolled Oat Flakes [7m+] , Toddler & Family

image

I made this for Baby C for his afternoon snack today. He was dipping it with his #numnuminc spoon and as usual I helped him to aim for his mouth instead of me! 😂
Made one portion in a reusable pouch for toddler J as well.

Instant rolled oat flakes are the same as rolled oats just much thinner and dissolve within seconds! I add them to Constantin’s purees and our energy drinks / smoothies a lot. 

Ingredients

5 large frozen strawberries (slightly defrosted)
1 large very ripe banana
2 heaps of tbsp of instant rolled oat flakes.

Method

Blend everything together until you’ve reached your desired consistency and serve chilled. 😋

Enjoy!
